Review: 2014-12-31, pretty good fight between Kohei Kono and Norberto Jimenez: it gets three stars. Kohei Kono entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 30-8-0 (13 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.4 super flyweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Omar Andres Narvaez); he suffered his last defeat in 2013 when he faced Liborio Solis (4-stars-fight Kono vs Solis) but then he came back to win beating Dawut Manopkanchang and Denkaosan Kaovichit (=Kono vs Kaovichit).
His opponent, Norberto Jimenez, has a record of 20-8-3 (10 knockouts) and he entered as the No.56 in the same weight class, the last time he lost was in 2011, against Ruben Vicente, since then he has collected 18 victories and two draws. Kono vs Jimenez is valid for the WBA World super flyweight title (held by Kono), first world title shot for Jimenez; undercard of Takashi Uchiyama vs Israel Perez.
